Former Miami Heat guard Tim Hardaway, who in 2007 wrecked his post-basketball career by declaring on radio “I hate gay people,” will co-sponsor a South Beach fundraiser Sunday for The Trevor Project — a national suicide prevention group for gay youth. “Gays and lesbians, we don’t have to accept the act, but we have to accept them as people. Especially children, we don’t want them to kill themselves. We want them to live their lives as they want to,” said Hardaway, who took several training sessions at YES Institute, a local anti-suicide group for gay youth. After the anti-gay rant, Hardaway lost his advertising endorsements and income. — Miami Herald
